Apology NOT accepted!
According to Huffington Post, Rick Perry apologized for calling his fellow GOP Candidates heartless. <sigh> Isn’t that sad? I mean really, really sad. He said something he means or, should I say, meant and he’s not standing behind his comment. He was right – his fellow GOP Candidates are heartless. A few of them are hypocrites (can you say Michele Bachmann, boys and girls?).
I disagree with Rick Perry on a lot of subjects, but educating the children of illegal aliens is the right thing to do. He has a point when he said, “If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they’ve been brought there by no fault of their own, I don’t think you have a heart.”
And, now he says ”I was probably a bit over-passionate by using that word, and it was inappropriate.”
Isn’t that what we want in a Presidential Candidate? A guy who feels strongly? Okay, truth is, I wasn’t going to vote for Rick Perry if he was the last man on earth, but come on. Stand up for what you believe in. Tell those sorry ass competitors of yours to go screw themselves.
Quit freaking apologizing! I hate that!
Rick Perry said:
“If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they have been brought there by no fault of their own, I don’t think you have a heart.”
He was referring to his fellow GOP Candidates for President. I think he’s correct. Romney, Paul and that brainless twit, Bachmann are so wrapped up in the rhetoric that they can’t see the children for the illegal aliens.
While I agree with Perry, I don’t think he really goes far enough. The Republican Candidates for President are nothing but a bunch of Tin Men for all their care of the people who are in need in this country.
Normally, I don’t post the same article here as I do on the front page, but I didn’t want this one to be overlooked. The Republicans are working hard to raise our taxes, while cutting the taxes of the rich and corporations.
According to Huffington Post, the Republican Party is all for raising taxes on you and me. Actually, I didn’t need to read the article to know that, they’ve been saying it all along. Paul Ryan – who is unfortunately, my representative in Congress – called the other night with one of them recorded messages. He stated, “I work for you.” Really? Because your roadmap for America plan makes it seem like you’re only working for the rich.
Pay attention, here’s where I’m going to do math.
|Federal Income Tax
Under Paul Ryan’s plan, health insurance would no longer be pre-taxed. Under his plan, any single making more that $50,000 per year would pay 25% in Federal Income tax. The tax rate for corporate America? 8%.
So, basically, Ryan and his Republican cronies will be financing this country on the backs of the single people. A family of four can earn $39,000 without paying one penny in taxes, while us single people will only be able to earn $16,000 without paying taxes. That means that I will end up paying more in taxes – a lot more. Under Ryan’s plan, I will pay $12,250.00 in taxes. Under our current tax structure (and using the standard deduction and personal excemption), I only pay $9,917.85. That’s a difference of $2,332.15.
Anyone who is single, shouldn’t vote Republican. It’ll cost you in the long run.
Rick Perry’s motives may be suspect, but Michele Bachmann (and Sarah Palin) lives in a dream world. Preventing cervical cancer should be the ends here. Making sure that young girls are protected so that they don’t suffer later should be more important than Bachmann’s going to the gutter to assume this means we’re going to allow 6th graders to have sex.
We give our children many vaccines that are mandatory – this one prevents cancer. Apparently, Bachmann doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the 12,000 women who are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. And, HPV isn’t just associated with cervical cancer; they list goes on: penile, vulvar, vaginal, anal and oropharyngeal (according to the CDC website).
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Mark Fiore’s latest Dogboy and Mr. Dan video. If I could draw, I would do something like this. He is right on the money regarding what is happening right now in our country.
Now that they are in charge of Congress and the “take back America” election is over, I think it is fair to say that those of us who can read and understand the US Constitution will need to learn a brand new language. So, without further delay, here is a video from Mark Fiore that will teach you how to speak Tea Bag.
When a few of Ron Johnson’s quotes are said in monotone English, they don’t sound so good. Here’s my latest video. I wish I had more time to do a more comprehensive video of all his quotes. But, if the 52% lead he has holds up – I’ll have six years to point out his shortcomings.
Guess I’m not the only one that has a problem with the Republican’s phony Pledge to America…
Here’s Ed Schultz’s view..
